Want to know more about what a vegan diet is, or what it involves?
In celebration for World Vegan Month in November and to prepare for Veganuary in January 2021, we want to help you to find out more.
Vegan diets are based on plant based foods, vegetables, fruits, grains, pulses, and non-dairy products, such as soya and nuts. We eat all the foods that vegans eat regularly.
Eating plant based foods can be healthy, and sometimes a change to regular vegetarian or meat based diets. Veganism goes back to ancient Greek and Indian times, and people have lived well on these diets.
The NHS has very useful information regarding vegan diets. The NHS vegan diet information on their website, list all the important vitamins, minerals and fats which are found in plant based foods. The Vegan Society also has very useful nutritional information for anyone interested in vegan foods and diets.
